We were meeting friends to enjoy your Monday Prime Rib special. Our friends were delayed so our server put in an order to insure that there would be prime rib for each of us. Great drinks and wine. It remains a favorite ever since my first introduction 44 years ago!

I love that Ringside takes pre orders for food that is not even on the menu. I don’t know any other restaurant that does that. Also, love the take out cardboard boxes.

To be perfectly honest, we were quite disappointed in the quality of the food. Nothing special. Pretty average AND really expensive. I don’t mind spending the money when the food is fantastic. But okay at this price point does not cut it. Thin cut, not much flavor. The potato was even marginal

On the other hand the service was excellent. 5 Stars to the Wait Staff

Our waitress and all of the staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was excellent. We all had a variety of steaks, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, from the salads to the delicious desserts. It's always like walking into a cave as you first enter, but the eyes adjust after a bit, and the experience is more than worth it.

I love the Ringdide! I’ve been a patron for 35 years. The service, however, has slipped. People bring you stuff, but you aren’t taken care of as was done in the past. I’ve noticed this trend for the past several years. Too bad. It does take away from the overall experience and value. Sad.

Very old school decor, which I liked. Free valet, which was a nice surprise. I had 60 day aged New York on bone. Worth $80 for a 12 oz cut, no, but it was very good. My wife had filets with bernaise I believe. She said not that impressed. We both upgraded to the lobster mashed potatoes side. These were excellent as I really liked the stock based sauce that came with it.
Service was very spotty. We had to end up asking for water after 5-10 minutes of sitting there. First round of drinks came to table after another lengthy wait and then they were the wrong ones. Thought it odd they wouldn't just let us finish them as we did have a few sips while waiting for the waiter to advise him. They were just going to throw them out anyway. At least offer to let us keep them. The correct drinks showed up 10 minutes later (how about rush request?). By then we had finished our bread and appetizer. Whole thing was upside down. Once we got through the first part everything went smoothly. Waiter was very nice, just a flurry of initial errors. Manager came around to ask how the food was, based on our experience another question should be 'how is the service?'

My husband and I sat in the corner booth in the bar. It’s our favorite spot because you can just sit back with a level of privacy and yet watch all the bar happenings. We love the vibe, the food and the wine list!

The best ribeye steak I've ever eaten. We had the luck of being 15 minutes late for our 8:15 reservation, and somehow lucked into the best seats in the house, right in front of the fireplace. Great ambiance, polite service, and fantastic food- I almost didn't want to leave. Can't wait to come back, highly recommend.

For being a fine dining top 10 steakhouse the service was lackluster. Proper steps of service were not taken (ie- wine presentation, crumbing the table, or steaks arriving before we got new silverware or even steak knives). When you’re portraying it as an elevated experience you expect higher standards or service. For the price I was disappointed.

The service was impeccable.
We started with drinks and their famous onion rings. Don’t pass those up. We had Baked onion soup next and it was very good. So was the bread, awesome. For dinner we had the Bone-in ribeye for two, lobster loaded (and I mean loaded) mashed potato’s and asparagus. The desert was great and we had creme brûlée and a delectable chocolate desert specialty. We were there for my wife’s birthday and had a great meal and experience at Ringside. We look forward to going back again soon. A.B.King

Ringside was wonderful as usual. We had the three course dinner and it was just perfect. Portions were generous and meal was beautifully cooked and presented. Especially enjoyed the salad and white wine mushrooms on the side. Our waiter was extremely attentive and surprised us with a celebratory 'bubbly' for husband's birthday along with toffee. Thank you Ringside for making the occasion so special.
